So I put together a FanIq All-Star ballot to see who the IQ nation feels should represent in the All-Star game , the players listed are the players  that deserve to be in the game on July 14th in St. Louis, not the players who are chosen by larger markets and fan bias, so c'mon Q members, let's show the rest of the world which site has the smartest sports fans.

 I had to go with Crawford in Left since he steals bases like I stole your bike...(terrible Beastie Boys reference...sorry...).  But I sure wanted to pick Lind b/c he is doing great this year as well.

Ben Zobrist IS an ALL-STAR!.... I picked Figgins over Longoria because frankly Longoria hasn't played up to his potential and has been bothered by a nagging hamstring that has caused him to miss about 10 games.

44 RBI's = 1 RBI per 4.16 AB    1.045 OPS! with 16 HR's

Miguel Cabrerra has been everything the Tigers have asked for. A power hitting first baseman.

In 2008. Miguel hit .292, hii an American League leading 37 HR's, and he drove in 127 runs.
So far in 2009...a .337 batting average, with 16 HR's, and 47 rbi.
Cabrerra has done this without Magglio Ordonez, who is having a terrible first half. If Maggs makes it back where he was last year(.317. 21HR's, and 103 rbi), Cabrerra could be looking at 40+homers, and 125 rbi. 

The Tigers are on the verge of coming alive offensively, and Cabrerra will be the leader.

1. Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers)  2. Dustin Pedroia (Boston Red Sox)  3. Evan Longoria (Tampa Bay Rays)  4. Derek Jeter (New York Yankees)  5. Joe Mauer (Minnesota Twins)  6. Jason Bay (Boston Red Sox)  7. B.J Upton (Tampa Bay Rays)  8. Ichiro Suzuki (Seattle Mariners)
